Hi I'm Josh

I'm a college student. I enjoy jamming with my friends and making films, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a very happy person and Heavenly father has blessed me in many different ways. I have a great family and lots of friends. Of coarse I've had challenges and struggles in my life but I have learned to be grateful for all the things I was able to learn during those tough times. One of my favorite things to do is jam with my friends. From guitar to drums to harmonica to anything that makes noise it will for sure entertain me for hours. Another thing I love to do is filmmaking. I love it so much, that I aspire to make it my profession and I am currently in college. If you would like to see any of my videos: http://www.youtube.com/user/gutareman17?feature=mhee My favorite sports to play are: Volleyball, Ultimate Frisbee, and Tennis

Why I am a Mormon

I was extremely blessed to be born into a member family of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Since I was very young my parents encouraged me to read the scriptures and pray on my own. As every member of the church should, I read the Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ and prayed to ask God if it is truly His Word. But it wasn't just one simple solitary prayer I offered to receive an answer. I prayed for a long time and desiring to receive a personal confirmation that the Book of Mormon is the Word of God. I had no vision, I saw no angel, heard no voice. no miraculous experience, but each time I prayed I felt a warm sensation of peace come to me. I knew that God was the only source that could provide me with such peace and so I concluded that the Book of Mormon has to be His Word. Once I received a testimony that the Book of Mormon is true scripture, just like the Bible is true scripture, it lead me to know that the Prophet who brought it forth was also a true prophet of Christ. That Prophet was Joseph Smith and I know that my Heavenly Father restored His true Church and returned the fullness of the gospel through the prophet Joseph Smith. I served a two year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints and was privileged to share with thousands this wonderful message. Without a single miss, every person that applied our message to their lives found a happiness they didn't know they were missing. As I witnessed such miracles happen my testimony grew stronger and stronger. I am a mormon because I know with out a doubt in my mind that God's Kingdom on Earth is the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and by following His teaching inside this church I will be able to return to Him.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing my best to do what God wants me to. I strive to pray and read my scriptures everyday, go to church each sunday and simply keep the commandments. I love to live the commandments because I know my Heavenly Father has and will bless me for doing so, especially the Law of tithing. I love to listen to our living prophet and apostles and I do my best to apply their counsel. I feel privileged to currently be a Ward Mission Leader and enjoy teaching a missionary preparation class. Even though I have returned from my two years as a missionary, I do my best to share the gospel with my friends or really anyone.
